Voters in Alabama’s House District 33 vote Tuesday on who they want to represent them going forward with Republican Ben Robbins facing Democrat Fred Crum in the special general election. HD33 consists of parts of Talladega, Coosa and Clay Counties.

Attorney Ben Robbins is a native of Talladega County and is a graduate of Talladega High School.

“Our district is a wonderful place to raise a family,” Robbins said. “We owe it to our children and grandchildren to leave them with more opportunities than we had, and I believe fresh ideas, bold leadership and true conservative values are the foundation of that success.”

Robbins serves on multiple community boards, including Habitat for Humanity, co-president of Leadership Sylacauga and serves the Talladega Rotary Club as a past-president. He is also active with several local Chambers of Commerce and the Sylacauga Young Professionals. He is a seventh-generation Talladega County resident and the grandson of former Childersburg Mayor Robert Limbaugh. He and his wife Melanie have one son.

Fred Crum lives in Sylacauga. He studied at Shaw University. He has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education.

“I am running for Alabama State House of Representatives – District 33,” Crum said. “If you live in Clay, Coosa, or Talladega counties, you can vote for me on January 19, 2021. I need your support to win this race.”

Crum has 20 years of management and customer service experience. He is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Mason Lodge #213 and a member of St. Thomas United Methodist Church. Crum favors Medicaid expansion, ending the cash bail system, expanding Pre-K and pandemic hazard pay.
